Pattern Description:

This is an amazing pattern based on a vintage lingerie set from a 1950's French magazine. The bra can be made in two ways, either the long or short line version. The long-line/ corselet version has a side closure and is intended for added support and avoiding any unsightly bulges under one's clothes.
The regular bra has a back closure.

Good Mrs Depew's Pin Up Bra Corselet  February 18, 2013

Really like the look of the finished bra; next step is to work out the cup sizing.....

the pattern was easy to follow. I wasn't sure sure how it will turn out. the bra is a little to full for me. I need a little help on top.
